How to Avoid Flu This Season ~ NATURALLY

The flu jab only contains last year’s strains of viruses, does NOT guarantee immunity, can have very unpleasant side effects caused by the cocktail of toxic chemicals it contains in order to preserve the microbes. In short, IT DOESN’T WORK!

Here are some simple, natural & highly effective steps you can take to remain flu-free this winter. Consider some or all of the following whilst you are still symptom-free:

  • Wash your hands frequently and try to avoid touching your face unnecessarily. Gargle once or twice a day with warm salt water, or with your preferred mouthwash..
  • Drink plenty of water & soothing, warm liquids to wash off viruses from the throat into the stomach where they cannot survive, proliferate or cause harm.
  • Blow your nose hard once a day. Swabbing both nostrils with cotton buds dipped in warm salt water is also very effective in bringing down viral populations.
  • Boost your own, natural immunity levels. You could take a good brand of Vit C tablets with Zinc in order to boost absorption and/or a Vitamin D3 supplement because of the lack of sunlight.

  • Better still, take your own, individual Homeopathic Constitutional Remedy throughout the winter months. ASK YOUR QUALIFIED HOMEOPATH ABOUT THIS, OR ABOUT A SPECIFIC (SAFE) REMEDY YOU COULD TAKE WEEKLY AS A SAFEGUARD.

  • Make sure you eat plenty of Vitamin C-rich foods and find ways to reduce your stress levels.
  • GET PLENTY OF REST! This is very important and equally, do NOT return to work too soon. Insufficient rest and recuperation does not allow the body to repair itself and increases the chances of succumbing to Post-Viral Fatigue (also known as Chronic Fatigue), which is a long-term and highly debilitating condition.

  • Consider taking homeopathic remedies in a 30C strength to match your flu symptoms, which always tend to change. Correct Homeopathic Remedies promote speedy recovery. For example:
    ACONITE ~ for relief of all symptoms that come on suddenly;
    ARSENICUM ~ for tummy upsets, chilliness, restlessness;
    BELLADONNA ~ for high fevers, sore throats;
    GELSEMIUM ~ for weakness, shivering, aches & pains.

  • And now some encouraging news...cheers!

    When it comes to alcohol, little and often seems to be the way to go, according to the latest research at University College London. Moderate drinkers are less likely than teetotallers and ex-drinkers to develop heart disease.

    Moderate drinkers—men who drink around 12 glasses of alcohol a week and women who drink eight—are 30 % less likely than ex-drinkers to develop heart disease or suffer a fatal heart attack. This protective effect increases to nearly 50 % compared to non-drinkers. Female tea-totallers and recent abstainers are at special risk compared to moderate drinkers and have double the risk of developing heart disease.
    Alcohol has been found to increase oestrogen levels, which promotes heart health. Alcohol also seems to have some protective effect for both sexes because moderate drinkers who had times when they didn't drink at all were also more likely to develop heart disease compared to those who always drank moderately. This was especially the case among the over-55s, the researchers found.

    Health and drinking habits of 35,132 people were examined over 10 years, during which time nearly 5 % suffered a heart attack or developed heart disease.
